A short summary of The Secret Life of Bees:

Healing amongst the beehives.

My favorite Sue Monk Kidd quote from the book:

"The hardest thing on earth is choosing what matters."

Questions to ponder while reading The Secret Life of Bees:

What is a mother?

Can you heal from the past?

My review of The Secret Life of Bees:

An easy book to flow right through.

Cliches abound, but they are entertaining.

The characters are easy to love.
